I have a similar problem.

No matter what charger I use, the phone randomly switches between charging and non-charging state.

Is this a problem with software or the port.

Just to clarify, I can hold the phone upside down, hanging from the charging cable, or wiggle the charger and it will continue to charge. The above error is just random. This leads me to believe it is a software or battery problem.

Mine makes the plug and unplug sound randomly, sometimes it wakes me up at night and its not plugged in.

I've just started seeing this problem now in the past few days.

When I unplug the charger, either the battery charging icon stays on, or the "Battery full, unplug charger" notification stays there.

The big problem is if I turn off the phone. After shutdown, the screen stays on showing two different icons (changes between them every few seconds). One icon is a battery half full or so, the other is an empty battery with a yellow triangle and a icon of a thermometer next to it.

When this happens, I can't turn on the phone. The only way I can turn on the phone when this happens is to plug in the charger, start up, then remove the charger again.

I'm on rooted KG2, XWKDD kernel. Bit worried about this, I'll try another ROM & kernel but I don't think it's software related?

Galaxy s2 car mode and charging port issue - resolved

HI,

I have been facing this issue with my galaxy s2.(When i have created samsung account and install Darky ROM 2 - XXKH3 ROM)

Issue:
1)Activation of CARD mode - automatically.
2)Charging automatically- though charger is not connected
3)Enabling the voice mode - automatically.
4)Battery draining problem.
5)auto handsfree speaker enabling

Solution:

There are two solution for the above problems:

1)Assume its not related to hardware (My case), i have wipe all the data(Using Darky Rom 2 tool), problem seems to occur even then.

I have updated the ROM to XXKG3_ODEXED. - that totally solved the problem.
I m using my S2 now for a week...no issue.

2)Assume its related to Hardware issue, (in some case's), you can clean the charging port by using thinner( nail polish remover - easy to get and cheap).

First u have to remove the battery, (preferably in direct sun light), use cotton to soak thinner, apply it on inner side of the port. keep the phone as it is for 20 minutes.(30 would be great).

Insert the battery, power on the phone.....problem solved.


I have tested it on 2 S2's, one with software problem and one with hardware issue.

Hope that will help....

Same problem here, just after a month of having the phone started the problems. The five problems darshangkolhe said, but also: auto power-on of the phone when I switch it off, and what it is more annoying, it is very difficult to get detected by Kies when it is plugged to the PC. Sometimes it only starts charging and others nothing, not even charging the phone.
I am very dissapointed with Samsung, I have paid 500€ for what was supposed to be one of the best phones, but just after a month of use it is going crazy!!

I am bringing it to the Samsung´s technical support this week.

Take a toothbrush and brush the Micro-USB port vigorously. Fixed.

Having the same problem, fixed doing the above. This phone was awesome. But it just looks so much like its a big rush job with all the bugs that were there. The screen coloring. Now the USB-port.

Meh.. wondering about that 5 phone..

Thanks prodygee, but I´ve already tried with a cotton bud with a bit of alcohol and no luck. I will try to get my phone fixed by the technical support or replaced.

I can not think about the 5 phone, I have spent 500€ not even 2 months ago, so for me another phone is not affordable.

I just want my Galaxy S2 to work as expected, it is not a low-cost mobile! :(

    It is discussed in this thread:
    http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1132588

    Summary:

    Cleaning USB port and in some times bending USB PCB downwards solves the problem.

    Please read this thread, maybe it helps you too:

    Summary post:
    http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=15924419&postcount=13

    Basically, first you need to clean the USB port (take the battery out when you do this).
    If it doesn't help, then maybe you accidentally bended USB pcb. It would happen if you accidentally connected USB cable upside down. In this case you need to bend USB pcb downwards carefully. The gap between USB pcb and socket bottom should be about 0.5 millimeter (about 2 millimeters on the top).
